XR's Only Add-ons?

So my g/f trying to be amazing bought me a chain guide, shark fin and case saver for my CRF...but she bought them from XR's Only so they all say "XR's Only" engraved on them. Should I install and enjoy, or return and re-order from somewhere else?

damn, thats a very tough one.

I personally would return them, but that might not be such a good idea.

I would hate to be in your shoes right now.

Here's your problem if you send them back. SHE WILL KNOW YOU DID IT. They will credit it back to her credit card. So you would have to tell her. If she's cool she will not care. The TT store can get you the Scotts sharkfin, the hammerhead case saver and a chain guide. Do a search for the cheapest on the web and they will match pricing. :busted:

I agree that the "XR's Only" name may be a little dated, and apparently the company thinks so too since their website seems to suggest a name change to "4-Strokes Only", but I wouldn't be ashamed or afraid to run something on my CRF that said XR's only. Al Baker and XR's Only are legendary when it comes to 4-stroke mods, desert and 4-stroke motocross.

In looking at those parts on the website- the sharkfin (if it has the integrated carrier) looks like an excellent part. I'd definitely run it.

The case saver is a pretty basic thing- not a whole lot of different design options or anything there. I'd run it.

The chain guide looks like a pretty good item. Very similar to others out there made by companies known for quality (BBR is one that comes to mind). Personally, I like the all-plastic design offered by TM Designworks, but this is probably an improvement over stock (in both quality and in looks).

Depends on how long you want to stay with your girlfriend? Me I'd put them on because the bike wont mind she might....

I have alway's been a happy Xr's only customer..Then and now, Makes no difference to me, I'd run them...(that's cause I do:thumbsup: )

At least its XR's only instead of WR or KLX's only.:busted: Did she notice it says that on it??? If not put them up on ebay or sell them to a buddy, I wouldnt let her find out about it though, then use the money to buy something different. Or tell her that they sent the wrong parts. I would probly go with the second one......

XRs Only is a quality shop. They installed (i.e. welded) my articulating light mount for my dual Baja Designs 8" HID setup. They also made a custom bracket for my fork mount since I was running aftermarket BRP Triple Clamps. Check out the photos:

They did a real nice job on that. By chance do they make something like that for a tow strap on the rear of the bike. It's a bitch towing back those KTM's without a good hook on the back. :busted:

I installed the parts today.

Chain guide is very nice. I really like it.

Shark fin is the cheap bolt on one (not the axle block)...we shall see how long it lasts, or should I return and add some cash to get the nicer one?

Case saver looks good...I reinstalled the plastic cover over it because I am scared to ride with no cover and my street boots.

where do you get it?

what does it do for the bike?

You can get it from any motorcycle shop through parts unlimited and there are a few places online (perhaps the TT store?).

There are some arguments as to whether or not it improves engine performance, but the real reason I run it is to keep me from burning my leg :busted:. For those who wear free rider pants this will help keep the right pant leg from melting.

Also, for me it lasts about 20 hours before I have to re-wrap it. Bushes and sand kicked up from the front tire eventually wears a hole in it.

how come you just dont run a heat guard on the header? I have never burnt myself or clothes on the header.

I would be proud to to put the XR logo on my CRF 450x any day. The XR is the farther of the CRF.

I started using header wrap because I couldn't find an aftermarket guard to fit the WB header pipe. On my old 04 CRF450R I use to run an Eline guard for a KTM 525 on my Pro Circuit GP Low Boy header pipe cause it was the same bend.

oh ok. makes sense. I will just stick with the head guard then.

thanks.

      Hey guys I could really use some help. I bought a 2005 CRF 450x that has an aftermarket air filter, full FMF exhaust system (pipe and header), removed backfire screen, and removed air snorkel. Bike idles and starts just fine, but when I hold the throttle anywhere from barely at all to about 1/2 it bogs, wants to die, and backfires. Seems like lean running conditions to me because if i leave the choke on the problem mostly goes away. Additionally, if i move the air screw out almost all the way (to the point where it could vibrate off), it seems to clean up a little bit. I am trying to determine whether bigger jet(s) would fix it or if its something else. My dad thought it might be the float level, but I'm really not sure. Thanks in advance for your help!

      hi, I'm buying a crf450x and this is the first 450x I'm gonna own but i was a bit confused on one of the pictures. i checked on other crf450x pictures and could not find this on any of the others. There is a gap right below the air filter and above the swingarm and I was wondering if it was normal. 
       
      Thanks!!!

      I have a 05 CRF450X that was just rebuilt that is not starting via its electric start. I can start it with the kick starter as well as a rolling start down a hill though. Once started it seems to run just fine. I have it at a bike shop right now and they are stumped as well. So far I know the battery has been tested/replaced, the carb has been cleaned, jetting is good, and they have also tested the starter motor and things all look okay. Any ideas where to look next?
